This is my favorite oatmeal recipe to make ahead or serve for company! It’s also great for the holidays, or you need a potluck breakfast dish. It’s a warm, satisfying, heart-healthy breakfast your whole family will love. It feels like you’re eating dessert, only it’s loaded with fiber. Other baked oatmeal recipes I love are Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal and Pumpkin and Banana Baked Oatmeal.

Baked Oatmeal

What I love most about this dish is that it tastes like I am having dessert, for breakfast. In fact, if I am craving a sweet treat, I usually opt for baked oatmeal. I have seen recipes that blend the oats, but to be honest I prefer keeping them in tact, I think the texture is better.

Baked Oatmeal Variations and Tips:

  • You can make this with any combination of nuts and fruit you like, the possibilities are endless!
  • Make it gluten-free by using gluten-free oats, and you can make this dairy free using any milk you would normally have on hand.
  • Swap the bananas for thin sliced apples and walnuts.
  • Swap the blueberries for strawberries or mixed berries.
  • To make ahead, you can refrigerate for 3 to 4 days.
  • Reheat leftovers in the microwave for about 60 seconds, until warmed.

Is it good to eat oatmeal everyday?

Yes, it is good to eat oatmeal every day with its nutritional profile and health benefits, including heart-health. I try to eat oatmeal at least 3 to 4 days a week. It’s also a whole grain and loaded with fiber.

Blueberries are nutritional powerhouses

Blueberries are packed with compounds that can help protect your heart, brain, eyes, and more. They also contain polyphenols, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can ward off diseases like diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

  1. Is the egg necessary? Will a powder egg substitute work, we have an egg allergy in the family.

  2. Great recipe.  I used 1 cup blueberries and 1/2 cup raspberries.  

  3. Another home run! Made. This yesterday for breakfast this week and I’m eating it right now, OMG. When I took it out today the oven yesterday it smelled AMAZING! I was a little concerned after reading some reviews and how it was thin, watery or runny. I followed the recipe exactly and consistency is perfect. I just told my husband I definitely have to bake this again. DE-LICIOUS!!

  4. I made this today and turned out great even though
    I mixed the egg mixture with the topping together instead of separately.
    Do you think it eould freeze well?

  5. Can this recipe
    Be doubles and
    Baked
    In a 13×9 casserole dish?

  6. The recipe ingredients should read 1/4 cup honey + 1 tablespoon. The reason is because the 1 tablespoon goes in the intial bake and the 1/4cup goes in the liquid mix.

    • Patty,

      It looks like the tablespoon is in the initial bake and according to step 5, the REMAINING honey goes in the second bake. 

  7. I just made this wit Hy rolled oats and it’s really good. I made this in the toaster oven in a round 9 inch foil pan (the kind that take-out comes in). I used frozen raspberries, thawed in microwave, and one banana, sliced 1/4 inch instead of 1/2 inch so it would cover bottom. I forgot to add the remaining honey to the milk mixture but it came out fine and I just drizzled some honey on top of the finished baked oatmeal. I probably baked this an extra 10 or so minutes. I popped it in to be finished after a workout. Perfect!

  8. Is it possible to cook this with steel cut oats? Is there anyway to do that? Thanks!!

  9. I followed the recipe verbatim and it was kind of runny and looked terrible.  I added cooking time which helped but just too much liquid.  My blueberries were pretty big so maybe that made it more juicy.  I will most likely not make this recipe again.  

    • Once it happen to me, too. Later I realised that I used a smaller than advised dish. Here the dish has to be 9 by 9 or 8 by 8 inches. Hope that helps. Also when I use frozen berries, I defrost them in the fridge overnight, so it cooks faster

      • I used frozen berries as well and they definitely need to be defrosted overnight. We loved this recipe! It came out just like on the picture that comes with the instructions 

  10. What is the consistency supposed to be on this? I followed the directions to the letter but it was very wet and runny, which, as it’s an oatmeal, I guess it’s ok? But I expected it to be firmer. 

    The taste, however, was delicious!

  11. I absolutely love your recipes and so easy to make. I am wondering why there are no longer Weight Points included??? This is one of the most important things for us WW people.
    This is so helpful for us WW people!!!
    Please let me know.
    Thank you!!!

  12. Made this exactly as the recipe stated (which is fairly unusual for me).  Had a few friends for brunch and wanted a little something extra (already had bagels, 2 quiches and fruit salad, but just felt a little extra fiber would be good.  WOW was this a big hit. Gotta say, this recipe got the most oohs and ahs as well as recipe asks. 🙂  Surprising, easy and DELISH!  Thank you!

  13. I love this recipe!! I have made a few times already, once with blueberries, once with blueberries+strawberries, and this time with peaches.  cant wait to try it out with apples this fall! 

  14. Do you cover the dish with foil for the last 30 minutes of baking!

  15. Do you know how many grams of sugar in recipe with elimination of honey?  Just using bananas and blueberries.  Thanks 

  16. It is delicious! Cooked it in my air fryer on bake–just cooked at 360 for same amt of time.
